I recently visited The Secret Rosé Garden, a pop-up cafe at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. I‘m obsessed with rosé and roses so as you can imagine I was ecstatic when I came across this limited-time event on Instagram and I knew I had to visit right away! This elegant installation was created to celebrate the hotels 90th anniversary, and by celebrate I mean they’ve recreated the famous Garden Lounge for our generation to enjoy. If you didn’t know, the Garden Lounge was a fixture of the hotel during the 1960s and 1970s.
The Secret Rosé Garden is situated on the rooftop and features stunning views of Rodeo Drive and over 5,000 square feet of flower installations by famous floral designer Eric Buterbaugh. If you’re looking for a place to take amazing Instagram photos, this is it.
There are a variety of rosés libations to choose from, and plenty of tasty treats like fancy finger sandwiches, and caviar. For the dessert menu, celebrity chef Chris Ford puts his touch on rosé inspired sweets and treats. They all sounded delicious but I want to go back and try the Rosé sundae made of Tahitian vanilla bean meringue kisses, raspberry rosé gummies, almond marshmallows, with 23k gold in a sparkling rosé float. YUM!
The Secret Rosé Garden is open everyday from 10-3pm, but it can be hard to get in depending on the time of day you go. This past weekend my friends and I stopped in for some drinks and I want to share my cute experience with you.
When my friends and I arrived, we took the elevator to the second floor.
As we exited, we entered a mock hotel room that consisted of pink with silver accents.
It was so charming I had to take a selfie!
Once we arrived at the garden, the first thing we discovered was, a neon, pink rosé garden sign and vivid flowers. It was the ideal backdrop for Insta-worthy photos!
The installation is incredible and don’t get me started on the view. It overlooks glitzy Rodeo Drive. You almost feel like you’re in a fairytale setting at this whimsical garden. The marble tables and woven basket chairs add to the adorable decor.
The black-and-white striped couches are situated in the lounge area and are for larger parties.
Look at the incredible selections on the menu! My friends and I had already eaten so ordered drinks instead, but I can’t wait to try the Black Truffle & Comte Fritters; the Smoked Chicken, Tarragon, Crème Fraîche, & Sour Dough, and of course The Rosé Sundae!
Are frosés which came with real flower petals.
The Secret Rosé Garden was supposed to end on September 3rd but due to high demand it was continued through the month of September. No official closing date has been indicated, so be sure to call before you head there.
